Accident And Emergency Claims

In the UK, hospitals see vast numbers of patients on a daily basis.  The professionalism and dedication of the majority of the medical professionals are of a very high quality, but inevitable human errors, volume of patients visiting the facilities every day and issues of resourcing means that sometimes things can go wrong and the outcome is not as it is supposed to be for the patients.

During times of urgent medical help, patients visit the Accident and Emergency department of the hospital.  But sometimes, mistakes are made by doctors and medical professionals in the A&E department and this leads to serious consequences for the patients.

If you have been a victim of an error whilst in the A&E, you may be entitled to make accident and emergency claims.

Examples of Common Errors

A wide variety of claims can arise as a result of errors made in the A&E.  Some examples of common errors which can give rise to a compensation claim include:

  • Failure to review a patient’s medical history properly
  • Failure to refer patients to a specialist doctor
  • Failure to provide proper treatment to a patient
  • Failure to carry out necessary scans and basic investigation
  • Failure to identify a spinal injury or a fracture
  • Wrongful discharge
  • Failure to act appropriately based on the investigations
  • Failure to detect signs of head injuries
